WOT – A war on Pakistan?


Fozia Niazi

The newspapers last week reported that the Afghan army’s regular troops have been captured while fighting against Pakistan security forces in guise of Taliban in Swat. Earlier in the Bajaur operation, one of the top commanders of Pakistan security forces told media men during a briefing that Afghan army’s regular troops were fighting in Bajaur using the highly sophisticated arms and weapons that has been in use of NATO forces. This has now been admitted by the Americans themselves that the NATO arms have been slipped to Pakistani Taliban. C J Chivers reported from Kabul on May 24 that insurgents in Afghanistan, fighting from some of the poorest and most remote regions on earth, have managed to maintain an intensive guerrilla war against materially superior US and Afghan forces. Arms and ordnance collected from dead insurgents hint at one possible reason: of 30 rifle magazines recently taken from insurgents’ corpses, at least 17 contained cartridges, or rounds, identical to ammunition that the United States had provided to Afghan government forces. The presence of this ammunition among the dead in the Qurangal Valley near the border with Pakistan , strongly suggests that munitions procured by the Pentagon have leaked from Afghan forces for use against US troops.

American journalist Peter Chamberlin presents a compelling narrative, explaining how CIA planners, in “Operation Enduring Turmoil,” have been busy using some of the Northern Alliance’s most ruthless men, along with a sizeable force of Uzbeks, to destabilize Pakistan’s Federally Administrated Tribal Areas and the North West Frontier Province. Pakistan , Chamberlin writes, is the keystone in an American strategic move that stretches in an arc across the entire Middle East and southern central Asia. President Obama has made a great show of being the man with the hope of “change” in his hand, but in the cold light of day he is readying massive doses of change for the worse. The world was begging for American leadership to undo what the last “mis-leader” has done, but the economic powers that rule America have produced another charlatan bearing nothing more than a nice smile, to bind us to the path of escalation that leads to the Empire’s goal of permanent war. The “war on terror” is much like a movie, in that it was definitely developed according to some sort of script, enormous investments were made in its production, while it waited many years in development. The first step in understanding is realizing that the attacks of September 11, 2001 were not the opening act, neither was the first Trade Center bombing in 1993. The second step in understanding the “war on terror” is accepting the fact that nothing is as it seems; there are no “good guys,” but there are plenty of bad guys, and an unlimited supply of innocents.

The US and its allies cannot wear the white hats in this bad “spaghetti western,” the second act of which is being stage-managed now in Western Pakistan , that is, unless there is no morality. Unless the foundation of the entire American legal system is suddenly without merit, the US also be seen as some of the worst bad guys in this violent international travesty of justice. The third step in understanding the truth about the terror war is to realize that the American government has not been trying to end these two wars, it has been using every means at its disposal to prolong the first two wars while it frantically sought a way to start a third. America is not really losing either war, but it has never had any intentions of winning them either. Obama continues the presidential tradition of deceiving the world about American intentions, present facts backwards—preserving capitalism will not salvage the war effort, but military action is planned, to acquire the means to avert any economic emergency, the resources of the underdeveloped region.

Pakistan is the keystone in an American strategic move that stretches in an arc across the entire Middle East and southern central Asia . If Pakistan is not totally under American control then the plan cannot work. The existence of this plan accounts for the brazenness shown in American actions taken in Pakistan that are in direct contravention of the expressed will of the Pakistani people and their leaders, actions clearly intended to undermine Army and governmental authority. The Obama Administration is expanding the war on the strength of this statement: “to disrupt, dismantle and defeat al-Qaeda in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and to prevent their return to either country in the future.” Chamberlin says every action that the US government takes in Pakistan and Afghanistan , under the pretense of eliminating al-Qaeda is a fraud. The concept of the “global war on terror” has served as an excuse for turning reality on its head and the implementation of the full war agenda of the radical American right wing. Bin Laden’s organization, “World Islamic Front for Jihad” is a spent force. In a war based entirely on manufactured delusions, the allied nations took a small expeditionary force of mercenaries and the amplifying device of the corporate media and created the illusion of al-Qaeda. The Muslim and Arab militants used in the attacks blamed on them throughout the world were military/intelligence agency assets, “patsies” to take the fall for a series of attacks upon American interests. The corporate masters of America ordered their secret “al-Qaeda” army, compromised mostly of retired military and intelligence officers, to initiate a series of well-timed and expertly advertised attacks.

This successful application of the “strategy of tension” had the desired effect of deceiving the democratic masses into giving the government permission to start World War-III. The great production, “the war on terror,” is the largest, most ambitious construction project in history, the construction of the world’s biggest inter-continental oil and gas pipeline system, with the lion’s share of it working its way towards the ports of Israel. The war in Af-Pak is based on multiple deceptions by numerous interested parties. The US brashly demands that Pakistan give-up its deceptions concerning the Taliban, in order to defend the central US deception, that al-Qaeda is a potent international organization of terrorists, that is locked in a war to the death with the US military. The war that Pakistan has been forced to fight against them is a “detoxification” operation, to destroy the noxious weeds that have been transplanted into the fertile soil of the Frontier Region. It has become apparent that regardless of what the Pakistani Army does, a major war escalation has been scheduled by the American military, beginning in June. The planned “surge” of possibly 24,000 troops, is just the start. The present commander of US forces in Afghanistan is being replaced with a specialist in counterinsurgency strategy, Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal. Reports on the Pentagon website InsideDefense.com,, reveal that a major “irregular warfare” air capability will be called on in June. Pakistan’s leaders continue to go through this painfully slow dance to the death with their American employers, disrupting life in the tribal regions, pretending to be locked in to a battle to the death with a few thousand militants, while they prepare an all too real escalation of Obama/Bush’s war, all for the sake of maintaining the greater illusion of fighting al-Qaeda. Pakistan ’s leaders are playing a very deadly game here with Obama, betting the survival of their precious nation that the US warlords will blink first.

In order to gain access to the promised PEACE funds, Pakistan is ready to jump through any hoop. “PEACE” is a restraining pay-off, designed by full-time “friend of Israel ” US Congressman, Howard Berman. His bill binds Pakistan to cut its own throat, by opening a full-scale civil war in its western regions, while simultaneously surrendering to India ’s good intentions in the east, in exchange for billions. Israeli watchdog Berman is once again carrying water for the Zionist state, by enforcing the nuts and bolts of the public relations “course change” spelled-out recently by radical new spokesman Avigdor Lieberman. Lieberman’s opinion, that “ Pakistan is the greatest threat to the world,” is way out of character for Israel .

Intensive US actions will begin in Pakistan next month, one way or another. Even if, by some miracle, Pakistan stood-up for its citizens and refused the PEACE pay-off, American military actions will be triggered when the Pakistani Army either fails to ignite civil war in S. Waziristan or fails to convince US leaders that they are sincerely locked in a land struggle to eliminate the Pakistani Taliban. The generals will not be able to fool American satellites without totally destroying the area under surveillance. Is this the process that is underway now in Buner and Swat, the leveling of the communities for the sake of the show?
